Be Happy

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I’ve been struggling with my mojo recently. I was so motivated to create during my Christmas in July series but it’s just disappeared this month. To be fair, life has been busy with a few home/garden challenges…

To kickstart my mojo, I decided to play along with the Global Design Project, which has a colour challenge this week. I chose a fun set my PaperArtsy (ref EKD03) and got to work. I actually embossed and coloured the image first and then thought about the design. Not the way I usually work and I ended up spending a bit of time trying out various designs before settling on this one. I’m still not completely sure about it, but sometimes you just have to stop and tell yourself, ‘that’s enough’!

Thanks for stopping by!

Easter comparison

Hello Friends and happy almost Friday!

With Easter only a few weeks away I decided it was high time I dusted down my Easter supplies and get to work as I do like to make and send out Easter cards!

I unearthed a cute stamp set by Pink & Main which I think arrived too late for Easter last year so I decided to use them for a super quick CAS card. I wanted to play along with the colour challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches and selected a few Altenew inks which seemed to match the challenge colours. Then my eyes landed on my newly-acquired Gina K inks and I decided it would be good to test them out on these stamps – so I ended up with two cards!

 

First up here, the Altenew inks card. I LOVE the Altenew inks and find they stamp very well – in fact I have all of them in my collection! I added a Lawn Fawn sentiment which I had smothered in Nuvo Aqua shimmer – love the delicate sheen!

 

 

Next my Gina K inks. I won some at Simon Says Create and have been trying to swatch them since I got home. They also stamp very nicely and the colours are so vibrant. Think I’ll be reaching for these a lot too! I used the same Lawn Fawn die cut but in the interests of comparison, I painted the die cut with a layer of Ink On 3’s Pixie Dust. Oh my goodness! Can you see that shimmer? Wonderful! Now I want to PIXIE DUST ALL THINGS!!

Thanks for stopping by!
